Today is the day that the DCU will change for good…at least for the foreseeable future. Justice League #1 and Flashpoint #5 are the only things that DC Comics is putting out today and they will lead DC in to a brave new world. I am cautiously optimistic about this new DC universe and I am looking forward to punching the clock at work today and rushing to the local comic shop to see if I can snag a copy of Justice League. Based on the articles I have read around the web it is looking more and more likely that this relaunch will be a success with previews of the new books and the first reviews of Justice League being generally positive.
I am generally more of a Marvel reader but I am really pulling for DC on this one. I started reading DC fairly recently and have been enjoying their characters and I look forward to seeing what these new interpretations are going to bring to the table. I also will enjoy not having to know 900 issues worth of continuity to fully grasp what is going on in the titles I am reading. I urge everyone who is a comic reader to give the new DCU a shot and pick up Justice League today. It could just be the greatest thing that came to comics in the last decade and only time will tell.
